WHAT IS CLASSICAL EDUCATION?
Classical education is an education primarily concerned with the cultivation of the whole child; mind, body, and spirit or character. It is the pursuit of those things that are true, good, and beautiful. A classical education at Liberty Academy first and foremost focuses on guiding the hearts of children toward virtuous character.
The question being answered is not "What do you want to be?", rather we are pursuing answers to questions like "Who do you want to become?", "What type of father will you be?" and "What does it mean to have lived a good and beautiful life?"
In practice it is a "back to basics" education focused on reading, writing, arithmetic, and an examination of the greatest books. It is an education rooted in the teachings of Greece and Rome, shaped through the Western tradition, which has produced the greatest thinkers the world has ever known.
THE MIND IS NOT A VESSEL THAT NEEDS FILLING, BUT WOOD THAT NEEDS LIGHTING.
